A probable cause hearing is scheduled for early November for a Lawrence man charged with armed assault to rape, indecent assault and battery, and kidnapping. In late September, a woman alleges she met 46-year-old Frank Harrison at a party in Lowell and stopped at his Tewksbury hotel room with him on the way to another party, when he attempted to rape her at knifepoint. The woman allegedly fought him off with a frying pan, leaving him with multiple cuts and lumps on his head and face. Tewksbury police were called to the hotel amid reports of a bleeding man. Harrison’s defense team says the defendant was actually being set up for a robbery.
